Hello, I'd take the throttle-body off and give it a cleaning, make sure all the passages are clear. Use a gage and check fuel pressure. Check for any codes. Any senors you replaced, did you check the wiring circuits first?

You may have to get somebody to put a scanner on it, so they can look at live engine data.

I was having problems with my 1990 tpi idling. I also replaced the MAP sensor, the IAC valve, and had a diagnostic run on it. It turned out to be a bad fuel injector. This can be pricy if you have a shop do it. Me and my dad took it upon ourselves to do it. Factory replacements run about 200 a piece, but we bought a refurbished set on ebay and did it ourselves for about the price of one fuel injector. I hope this helps.
